Organisations that are working to improve or sustain access to water for leisure use can apply to the Canoe Foundation for grants. The funding can be used for projects that increase or enhance public access points to water for all forms of paddle sport (canoeists, kayakers and paddleboarders) as well as activities to protect and enhance waterways and coastlines. Grants of between £500 and £10,000 are available and can be used for all kinds of access improvement works including launch and landing platforms, ramps and steps; pathways and accessible routes to the water’s edge; signage; and designated parking for water users. Projects must be ready to go i.e., planning permission granted or agreed in principle.
Applications will be accepted from a range of organisations including paddle sport clubs, community groups, charities, parish councils and local authorities.
